mysql is still free - they do an 'enterprise' version toI think.

As Yabb isn't mysql , you just need to pick the version that will work wioth the database of the source forum

Perl is the language that runs yabb, so just have that installed.
the converter does the hard work, so you just need to have the source database and  mysql availble.


I have the Source Database, but i don't know exactly what program language it uses.

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 3]
databases use their own language. Nothing to do with php or perl.
So long as you know the BBS you're converting from, the rest is easy, since that defines the scripting language and the version of the database.

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 3]
I am trying to run this at a Godaddy server and they need exact paths in every file (se my post about godaddy in the support section).
It cant use hires and cant find Math :: Fleximal.pm

Instead of me going through all the files and search/change all paths, can you give me instructions of where to change it??

I am trýing to convert a phpBB board

Math::Fleximal is fixed in Beta 3, so make sure you have that.

To remove Time::HiRes, in converter.pl, search for
Code Select All
# Benchmarking
use Time::HiRes qw(time); 



replace with
Code Select All
# Benchmarking
#use Time::HiRes qw(time);

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 4]
It's been a while since a feature release. Here's Beta 4, with UBB.classic support. It should also fix some bugs in phpBB2.

Please test it out if you can. Let me know how it goes!

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 4]
Did you read the readme.txt file? Did you set up YaBB 2 on your own first? What are you having problems with?

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 4]
I created a post (http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1154192026/0)

"Hello, I am very new to YaBB. It was just added to my server's cpanel.

I'm currently using phpbb for my online forum but want to switch to yabb. Is there a way to take my phpbb's backup and put it to yabb's?  I have the backup in an sql file but i'm still new to everything and do not know if there is a way to no lose all of my members and posts. "

my cpanel has YaBB 2.1 on it and I'm trying to convert my phpbb sql file so I can use it with the YaBB. i was told that this convertor would do it. So i DLed it but can't find any instructions on how to use it. i DLed the  Beta 4 version of it. it came with like 6 folders but I do not understand the readme file. I'm new to this so I don't understand what it means.

Do I upload the folders to my server, then put my backup file into one of the folders? If so where do I upload the folders to, and which one do I put the backup sql file into. Also after I do that what do I do, like how do I run it to make it convert. Sorry if I sound like such a newb it's because I am. lol Thanks in Advance.

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 4]
you dont use the sql backup file you use the current database

perhaps a simplified set of instructions AND the converter from phpBB could be sent to cpanel to be included in the next update of cpanel? It would surely be a great help to their customers?

Re: YaBB Universal Converter [Beta 4]
yes i know, forget using that, you need to tell the converter where the current database is, not the backup
